July Papertrey Releases and more...

Questions about Basic Grey stamps: I checked my new stamps and there is no specific stamp name, etc...they were $1.95 each and said *value* up in the corner..kinda like the $1 stamps we see everywhere. I too checked the BG website and did not find them. My local scrapbook store had them displayed with the new Lemonade collection of papers and accessories. I would inquire about them at your local scrapbook store or favorite online store that carries BG.

Hi all! I hope had fun shopping last night with Papertrey. There were some awesome sets and products released this month. Here's a few more of my projects:

A French Country themed card using In Bloom, Kraft cardstock, Vintage Buttons, Rustic Twine, white embossing, Polka Dot Basics II and ribbon colored with a Copic marker.
A little paper piecing and some grey shading with a Copic marker for even more dimension.
Here's a little card set using Mod Squad and some monogram letters.
Love how the circle punches worked so well with this image.
And a little shopping I did yesterday at my favorite local scrapbook store, Scrapbooks, Etc in Topeka, Kansas. THE nicest gals you'll ever find. Although I'm sure that Jackie was hiding new product from me and then called and left a message for me AFTER I got back home....almost an hour away. Just my luck. ;) I did leave with this little bundle of new goodies from Basic Grey (paper and stamps). Found some matching envelopes and a new Fiskars punch that I've been wanting for a while. Can't wait to play in my stamp room!

But first I have bizniss in the kitchen to take care of. Mom's coming over and we're going to can up some hotdog relish. It's my all time favorite relish. But don't even ask for the recipe because there's no way I can decipher her recipe unless I have her totally re-write it for me. I need to have her do that some day. I have oodles and oodles of cucumbers so I got about 20 of those used up today. Next up is what to do with all this zucchini!! Later gaters!!

The card is beautiful. Love the note cards. I need to make up some monogram ones for Christmas gifts. Yes I'm doing holiday projects. Thanks so much for all the inpiration. Enjoy your time with your mom and you should get her to write down recipes for you. Trust me you'll want to have them. :)

Glad you posted your projects from this months release.. I haven't been able to see any of them in the gallery. :( Seems like that happens every month! Oh well.. Everything is so cute. I especially love the note cards.

I just love your card. Love the loot that you got as well.

Linda Bandow said...

Love the card, especially.....Kraft can be so sophisticated and of course you have done your usual faboo job. FYI....did you know that you can substitute zucchini in most any recipe calling for okra? I know your pain wioth all the garden stuff coming at once....One year we had bushels of tomatoes and green beans.....Luckily lots of grateful friends

Gina said...

I love anything with Kraft paper and I also love anything green - so both of those projects are AWESOME to me!! Beautiful work!

Are these new Basic Grey stamp sets that I see? They are adorable ... but I don't see them on the Basic Grey site at all.

How fun!

Cindy H. said...

Love your French Country themed card - so pretty, and the Mod Squad note cards with the momogram. I've had the LSS (45 mins. away) call me after I left, but at least it was the next day and then I grudgingly;) trekked back up:)

Wendy said...

I also can't find the Basic Grey stamps. Any ideas on what line they go with or if they're an exclusive?

Debbie Nelson said...

Love the monogrammed set! I REALLY need some uses for zuchinni...let me know if you find any good ones!


Vina said...

Love your new treasures! My lss doesn't carry BG stamps so I found them on Ebay. It's their Gamma limited Edition line. I read somewhere that Basic Grey already sold out of these cute gems.
Thanks for your inspiration!
